Recently I found that the local cable TV provider had removed eight channels from my cable choices to watch. There was not a reduction in price or any price warning.
I was also advised that the analog TV system was history and would shut off in the near future. I had a very good picture on four TVs with a total of nine VCRs hooked up to them. I could tape nine different programs and watch four others.
The excuses ran from Federal Government ordering the changeover to high definition, to customers wanting a better picture. The truth is – money – and the reasons for cutting channels off was, and is, to scare us into accepting high definition.
The honest thing to have done would have been to keep both and give us a choice. That won’t happen because their interest lies in money and not the customers. I protested in the only way I knew how, which was to move my TV, computer and telephone to another company. I hope all of you do the same.
I would like to recommend the service departments of both AT&T and Direct TV.
